Supreme Court won't consider Georgia city's cash bail policy
from The Associated Press via U.S. News & World Report
The U.S. Supreme Court declined to weigh in on whether a Georgia city's practice of jailing people accused of low-level crimes who can't afford to pay bail is constitutional. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta in August upheld Calhoun's policy of jailing people for up to 48 hours before a judge rules whether they can't afford bail. The Southern Center for Human Rights sued on behalf of Maurice Walker.
